I was prepared to either ignore or be disappointed by the upcoming Interpol album, Our Love To Admire, but it leaked and I heard it. And, well, it's pretty breathtaking. I appreciate that, while it still owes a lot to the post-punk of the early 80's, it doesn't lean so much on anglophilia. There are some subtle but distinct American qualities on the album.
First single = "The Heinrich Maneuver"
It's like that first summer slice of watermelon. Enjoy.
Album is out on July 10th.
